BMW PGA Championship: Selections

Despite my focus being on the US Tour for the season, this gives myself and I hope backers a little bit of “fresh air” in terms of selections and choices. I’ve gone for two players who are surprisingly big odds, considering their abilities.

The first of those is Henrik Stenson. The Swede has seemingly turned the corner, having missed five of six cuts earlier in the season, including The Open Championship. However, he since placed T$, 3rd and T15th in the last three events played and looks to be getting back to his best. Regardless of his form, he still ranks 9th on the European Tour for Driving Accuracy and with the upturn in form, he surely cannot be discounted at such a big price.

The other selection is South African, Branden Grace, who has been a bit up and down this year so far, although a second in the Wyndham Championship just keeps him within the periphery of potential selections. That course at Sedgefield is very similar to Wentworth, with plenty of undulating fairways and plenty of tree-lined fairways. He hit a 64 and a 66 to reach the play-off in that event, And its that form that inspires his selection here.
